They have a snack program at my school, where the school provides healthy snacks every morning. Every time they have leftover bananas that get too ripe, they toss them in the freezer. So, now it is the last week of school, and they are trying to get rid of all of the bananas….my lucky day!
I do have a few banana bread recipes but I was not sure how they would turn out with frozen bananas…anyone know if the recipe will turn out the same? Anyways, I like to try new things, so I thought why not try a new banana bread recipe? Yolo right? So, I found this recipe that used frozen bananas….here is the link to the blog…
banana bread recipe
Here is the recipe from the website, and the changes that I made in brackets…
3 bananas – (I used 5 bananas)
1 cup of white sugar (I used 1/3 cup of brown, and 1/3 cup of white sugar)
3 tablespoons of milk
1/4 cup of melted butter ( I used a couple tablespoons of oil)
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups of flour
I added a teaspoon of vanilla too!
Although I didn’t follow the recipe exactly ( I know….I don’t think I have ever actually followed a recipe exactly before…) but what I did like about this particular recipe was that you mix everything together in one bowl, then you add the flour to the same bowl gradually. You don’t have to dirty two bowls, and I am all over that!
The recipe said to beat the eggs first, so I added the eggs in the bowl first, and beat them, then added the rest of the ingredients. (Once again, the logic was pure laziness…just didn’t want to dirty another bowl by beating the eggs)
Three batches made 6 loaves, 24 cupcakes, and another small loaf.
They turned out moist, flavourful, and really good. I will make these again!
I actually put the loaves into bags with a little ribbon for gifts for a few people at work.
